Product Description
There are nine lessons in this unit for Grade 3 Science dealing with Plant Growth and Changes. The standards covered in the lesson plans are:
1. Students will be expected to place seeds in groups according to
one or more attributes
Attributes should include:
(i) size
(ii) shape
(iii) colour
(iv) appearance

2.. Students will ask and investigate questions related to growing conditions for plants - describe the conditions that are necessary for plant growth. Include:
(i) air
(ii) nutrients
(iii) water
(iv) sunlight
(v) space
(vi) Warmth

3. Students will make predictions about which conditions will be the best for plant growth

4. Students will make and record relevant observations and measurements of plant growth during their investigations

5. Students will construct and label bar graphs that show plant growth under different conditions.

6. Students will draw conclusions and describe how plants are affected by the conditions in which they grow

7. Students will identify and explain patterns and discrepancies in the growth rate of similar plants grown in varying conditions. Include:
(i) roots
(ii) stem/trunk
(iii) flower
(iv) seed
(v) bark
(vi) leaves

8. Students will identify and describe parts of plants and their general function.

9. Students will be expected to observe and describe changes, that occur through the life cycle of a flowering plant using written language, pictures, and charts

10. Students will be expected to describe ways in which plants are important to living things and the environment:
- trees provide a space for plants, for birds to nest, and shade and shelter for others
- green plants provide the oxygen we breathe
- provide food, medicine, dyes and material for fabrics
- help prevent erosion of soil
- used in making building materials (lumber, plywood) and paper

11. Students will identify parts of different plants that provide humans with useful products and describe the preparation that is required to obtain these products and how our supply of useful plants is replenished
